Crispy Fried Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Marie

These sweet potatoes are boiled, then diced and fried until crispy with bacon, a touch of sugar and onions. Cooking time includes boiling of potatoes. Really good!

This was really yummy but the sweet potatoes only caramelised on the bottom and I couldn't flip the whole mass of sweet potato, bacon and onion. Maybe it was missing some extra oil or fat to help crisp up the sweet potatoes? I sliced up my sweet potatoes into four pieces and boiled them for 20-30minutes before cooling and cubing.
